FRR + 4TU.Ethics Workshop: Dealing with threats and disaster : New paradigms – New technologies – New ethical challenges?

November 23-24, Office of the Foundation for Responsible Robotics (Laan van Meerdervoort 70, The Hague)


This November, the FRR will again team up with the 4TU Center for Ethics and Technology to host a workshop addressing the current developments in the fields of safety and security. The goal of this workshop will be to ask if these developments bring with them new ethical challenges, or simply an exaggeration of traditional ethical and practical issues. To that end, we will address several questions: what does the contemporary focus on resilience mean for dealing with disasters? What role do new technologies (e.g. drones, AI, and other tech) play in the shift towards proactive approaches in policing? How can we understand the use of new technologies – for example, drones – in a humanitarian context?


The workshop will bring together multiple stakeholders with different backgrounds and perspectives to create a roadmap of current developments in the safety and security landscape and the ethical implications that they raise, and to identify topics that are in need of further research.

The workshop has been organized by the TF Risk, Safety, and Security and TF Robotics.
